Cabinet Cards, usually about 6.5 X 4.25 inches, were thought to be the beginning of modern photography.
There is lots of information on the net about the origin and use of these professional mounting boards. There is some thorough information at a site called Photo Tree
On this page we will assemble some cabinet cards from the LOST GALLERY. None of these have the photographer identified. Many were in very bad shape when found, so only an enhanced version is presented here.
All of the cards that have the photographer identified are assembled on these pages in alphabetical order by photographer:
A through D is HERE
E through H is HERE
I through M is HERE
N through Q is HERE
R through T is HERE
U through Z is HERE
